Tonight I’m doing an experiment to create a conversation about politics across several different niches, with the idea of trying to broaden political debate.
My aim is to help pull together different aspects of politics and media – including campaigning, technology skills, scrutiny, how to report to a high standard, and local reporting – as a way of helping build participation online.
That’s a big subject, so I’m starting with one aspect that I can grab hold of and which should be of wide interest – making some income from political or other blogs – and a twitter chat on the hashtag #onlinepolitics from 9pm to 10pm, which will be captured on my blog using Cover It Live.
There is an introductory article for this chat published earlier today here, as a “starter for ten”.
Anyone is welcome to watch or join in.
I am @mattwardman on twitter.
